In the last decade or so, it seems every time there has been a big stunt or disaster coming up, we've known every little detail of what is about to happen, the only real exception was the Tram Crash, which did manage to keep a few details under wraps.
Knowing what was to come, made all these events much less exciting, it became less about the shock, and more about seeing something you heard about play out on screen.
Since Kate Oates took over, it seems she has begun changing this. While we did know that Kylie was going to be killed off a week or two before it happened, we had no idea how, and everybody began speculating on how. It made watching the show much more suspenseful.
Next week seems to be taking this one step further, we know David is planning something, we know the general outline of his plans, most of the small details that had been revealed to the press, were actually hinted at in the show itself. We have no idea what will happen, who it will involve (other than David) and where it actually happens.
I hope Coronation Street keep this up, as not knowing what happens next makes watching the show a lot more enjoyable!
